Why'd it get ragged on so much? I personally like it very much!

Staying Power, Back Chat, Action This Day, Put Out The Fire and Under Pressure are some of my favourite Queen tracks, and I cant understand why it was so hated!! Sure people may have gotten freaked by the sudden change in style, but It was QUEEN, shouldnt they have known it was just a phase?!

haaa !!! The good ol' Hot Space Topic !! I needed it :)
For me Hot Space is legend, and legends never dies. I Really like this album : Dancer, Staying, Palabras, Pressure, Action, Cool Cat are among my favorite Queen Tracks. This is just an album which need more committment, more patience to be discovered.

I absolutly LOVE this album, its probably in my top 5 Queen albums.

I think why some people didn't like it becuase its really nothing you'd except from Queen.

I don't understand why the song "Dancer" catches so much shit.... its honestly one of my favorite Queen tracks.

I like it better then 70% of the songs on Queen 2.

I think the reason is because Queen came out with an album like 'The Game' which had a decent amount of hard rock, and then they kind of went left field with 'Hot Space' and alot of the fans back then felt that they were loosing their rock feel, and going down the R&B mode. I too like alot of the songs off of Hot Space, but back then it just threw everyone for a loop.

I think it's better than The Works !
Most of the songs are pretty good if not outstanding.
It could never be in the same league as say ANATO.

I think it all came down to timing, at least here in the States. Disco was over by '82-not only over but actually suffering a severe back-lash. Rod Stewart, Kiss, Stones-anybody who had done disco took a lot of sh*t for it. Bites the Dust had been a huge hit, but it had been so huge and was actually played so often that people may have been "Queened out" to the point that no matter what they did it would have been slammed. At the time it came out (I was 17), I didn't like it. Three or four years later I began to listen to it again and began to like it more. I think it has aged well. I wouldn't be surprised if someone sampled some of the sounds for a song today.

Most of the posts here are from much younger fans of the band but my personal experience was when it first came out in 82. I was and am still a fan and up to that point we were used to hearing great music from Queen. The Game was huge here in the States and everything up to then was AWESOME music from the band. But when Hot Space came out we weren't too sure what the hell just happened. It was like we (the fans) were cruising along and then all of a sudden we hit a brick wall. We were ued to rock and then this funky, R&B thing came out. Were certainly weren't ready for it. It was WAY ahead of it's time. I think it's interesting that younget fans like this album but when you're used to hearing great music year after year come out from Queen and then this album comes out... it really changes your view of the band for a while. Though there are some really good songs on it. In general, it was a big left turn for a band that up to that point did everything right. But that didn't stop me from admiring their music.
